Legal Aid ACT helps people in the ACT with their legal problems, especially people who are socially or economically disadvantaged. We can help in criminal law, family law and some civil law matters. See What We Do or Contact Us to find more about how we can help you.
We have lawyers on duty at many courts and tribunals in the ACT, who can advise and assist people in urgent matters if they have not made prior arrangements.
If you can't afford a lawyer, you can apply for a grant of legal assistance to help you pay for a lawyer to run your case.
